Winemaker Notes

Blend: 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvedre

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The oustanding 2011 Lirac Antares is a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvedre all aged in cement vat after being fermented with indigenous yeasts. From low crop yields of 30 hectoliters per hectare and bottled unfiltered, this is an outstanding wine at a stunningly attractive price. Deep ruby/plum/purple, with notes of Asian soy sauce interwoven with kirsch liqueur, underbrush, lavender and Christmas fruitcake, the wine is deep, full-bodied, opulent, and a total hedonistic and intellectual turn-on. Drink it over the next 2-3 years

Domaine Duseigneur, France
Located in the hills of Lirac on the right bank of the Rhone across from the vineyards of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Domaine Duseigneur produces a range of classic appellation blends in a cleam, elegant and expressive style. Through great terroir, pristine farming, and winemaking savy, Domaine Duseigneur has become an emerging star in the southern Rhone.

A long and narrow valley producing flavorful red, white, and rosé wines, the Rhône is bisected by the river of the same name and split into two distinct sub-regions—north and south. While a handful of grape varieties span the entire length of the valley, there are significant differences between the two zones in climate and geography as well as the style and quantity of wines produced. The Northern Rhône, with its continental climate and steep hillside vineyards, is responsible for a mere 5% or less of the greater region’s total output. The Southern Rhône has a much more Mediterranean climate, the aggressive, chilly Mistral wind and plentiful fragrant wild herbs known collectively as ‘garrigue.’

In the Northern Rhône, the only permitted red variety is Syrah, which in the appellations of St.-Joseph, Hermitage, Cornas and Côte-Rôtie, it produces velvety black-fruit driven, savory, peppery red wines often with telltale notes of olive, game and smoke. Full-bodied, perfumed whites are made from Viognier in Condrieu and Château-Grillet, while elsewhere only Marsanne and Roussanne are used, with the former providing body and texture and the latter lending nervy acidity. The wines of the Southern Rhône are typically blends, with the reds often based on Grenache and balanced by Syrah, Mourvèdre, and an assortment of other varieties. All three northern white varieties are used here, as well as Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Bourbelenc and more. The best known sub-regions of the Southern Rhône are the reliable, wallet-friendly Côtes du Rhône and the esteemed Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Others include Gigondas, Vacqueyras and the rosé-only appellation Tavel.
